“WTF just happened?! Currently, I’m nursing a hangover and feeling sorry for myself (a payday tradition of sorts, I guess) realising I went in on those all-too-tempting Black Friday sales, after I half-laughed about the idea that people were even thinking about battling the freezing cold high-streets in their hundreds, just for a tiny saving on something you probably don’t want anyway. This quickly changed when I saw the savings, of course. Mango! Zara- I was sold. Here are my buys (and what I saved).



This was the site that started it all for me. Mango was never really a shopping destination on my radar until the gorgeous blogger Freya Killin kept pulling out looks to die for! I had my eye on a braided knit jumper from here too however they yanked up the price before the sales (typical) so i didn’t get that but I got the most amazing thigh-high snakeskin boots (sounds like they are doing THE MOST) for an absolute steal price, as well as the most stunning lace bottom black cami dress that screams classy date-night LBD and some stunning silver and pearl earrings. I hardly ever buy jewellery as I’m more of an investment-piece gal, but they really are beautiful and can be dressed up or down.

ASOS: 20% OFF.

I am a self-confessed ASOS fiend. I still have my student discount codes and my weekly ASOS orders are usually justified by the fact I have premium delivery (free for the whole year baby!), free returns, and Klarna so I can order all the sizes before I decide what ones to keep. ASOS is just a great staple in my life tbh, (more than some people, even). During the Black Friday/ Cyber Monday debacle, I ordered several very different items, one being presents. Christmas is fast approaching and this year I will be prepared damn it! I am super organised with present lists and have worked out the costs and ASOS Gift Guide is a great place for stocking fillers, novelty gadgets and even beautiful wrapping paper. I ordered quite a few at super bargain prices, books for £6, mugs for around £4 and games for under a tenner, and I highly recommend them! It wouldn’t be an ASOS haul though without treating myself a little- so I got a gorgeous snakeskin body I’ve had my eye on FOREVER, and replaced my worn to death coated jeans with another pair.


Another great site for presents, I stocked up on essentials for all my favorite females including gifts for my mum, best friends and even my brother’s girlfriend. 30% off of cosmetics for some reason sounds like an absolute steal as you rarely get off even 10% and I use skincare (and brow products, tbh) every single day, so stocking up on the cheap is a must, do of course I nabbed a few cult products for myself too!
